Inspired by her visit to Mama Sannino's, Laura Shunk served up a list of Denver's five best neighborhood Italian restaurants. Which inspired fond memories of Fratelli's and Valente's from some readers, as well as a slap from another for skipping Cafe Jordano.
And then there was this rave from Barslinger for Locanda del Borgo, which did make the cut:
Locanda is by far the best Italian restaurant I have eaten at anywhere, not just Denver. I was happy to see good press for Mama Sannino's great red sauce joint. Jimmy and his wife are some of the hardest-working people you will find in the business, they deserve the good press and I love the food.
What's your favorite (still open) red sauce spot in town? Which closed spots do you still miss?
